PREMIER LEAGUE: We preview Saturday’s three Premier League games between BOURNEMOUTH V NEWCASTLE, BURNLEY V LEICESTER and WEST HAM V HUDDERSFIELD all with a recommended BETDAQ bet and extended match stats.
BOURNEMOUTH V NEWCASTLE
3pm We have a shortened fixture list in the Premier League this weekend as the FA Cup Quarter Finals are taking place, and we only have three games this Saturday – all starting at 3pm. We kick off with Bournemouth hosting Newcastle and there shouldn’t be too much between the sides here. Both sides have really struggled away from home lately and we feel that is what will be the deciding factor here. Newcastle have managed just two points from their last six games away from home and Bournemouth are always solid in front of their own fans. They have a superb record here – excluding their games against the top six – they won’t have to face that type of quality today and the 2.12 on the home win looks cracking value.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
Bournemouth to beat Newcastle at 2.12.

- Bournemouth have won neither of their home Premier League meetings with Newcastle, losing in 2015-16 and drawing in 2017-18.
- Newcastle’s only league defeat away at Bournemouth came in the second tier in September 1989, with Mick Quinn scoring the Magpies’ goal in a 1-2 defeat.
- The home side has only won once in the five previous Premier League meetings between Bournemouth and Newcastle (D1 L3), with Newcastle winning the reverse fixture at St James’ Park.
- Newcastle have won just three of their 27 away Premier League games on the south coast (vs Brighton, Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Southampton), drawing 10 and losing 14.
- Each of Bournemouth’s last seven home league defeats have come against ‘big six’ opposition. The last non such side to beat them at the Vitality Stadium was Burnley in November 2017.
- Newcastle have picked up just two points from their last 18 available away from home in the Premier League (P6 W0 D2 L4).
- Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson have combined for nine Premier League goals for Bournemouth this season – the last duo to combine for more in a single season were Arsenal’s Nicolas Anelka and Dennis Bergkamp in 1998-99 (10 goals).
- Only against Swansea (4) has Salomon Rondon scored more Premier League goals than he has against Bournemouth (3), with the Venezuelan netting both of Newcastle’s goals in their 2-1 win against the Cherries earlier this season.
- Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson is looking to score in four consecutive league appearances for the first time since October 2014 in the Championship.
- Newcastle’s Ayoze Perez has netted six Premier League goals this season, though they’ve all been at St James’ Park. He’s the highest goalscorer in the division this season yet to score away from home.
BURNLEY V LEICESTER
3pm This should be a very interesting game and it’s not a surprise to see an open market. The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Burnley 3.2, Leicester 2.5 and the draw is 3.45. Burnley have ran out of steam in recent weeks after a run of eight Premier League games without losing – they now come into this fixture off the back of three straight losses and they are getting dragged back into a relegation battle. This is a massive fixture for Burnley given the results last weekend with Southampton and Cardiff winning, and they really need some points. Leicester have been consistently inconsistent this season but the one thing that remains constant in their games is goals – they score and concede buckets! We like over 2.5 goals here at 2.1 which we feel should be odds on – Burnley have had over 2.5 goals in four of their last five while Leicester saw overs in all five of their previous fixtures.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
Over 2.5 goals at 2.1.

- Burnley have won their last two home league games against Leicester, having lost the previous four against them at Turf Moor.
- Leicester have kept a clean sheet in 57% of their Premier League games against Burnley (4/7), their joint-best ratio in the competition against sides they’ve played more than twice (also 57% vs Sunderland).
- Burnley have won their last two Premier League home games against Leicester – they’ve never won three in a row against an opponent at Turf Moor in the competition.
- Burnley have lost 13 Premier League games by a margin of two or more goals this season, only Fulham (17) have lost more. Indeed, the Clarets only lost 12 games in total in the whole of the 2017-18 campaign.
- After an eight game unbeaten run in the Premier League (W5 D3), Burnley have lost each of their last three in the competition. Sean Dyche’s side had the sixth best defensive record in the Premier League last season (39 conceded), but have shipped the joint second highest number of goals in the competition this term (57).
- Leicester have won two of their last three Premier League games (L1), more than they had in their final eight under Claude Puel (W1 D1 L6).
- Burnley’s games have seen more 90th minute goals than any other side in the Premier League this season (12), with the Clarets shipping a league-high nine times in the 90th minute or later (scored three).
- Burnley’s Ashley Barnes has scored in each of his last three home Premier League games – no player has ever scored in four in a row at Turf Moor for the club in the competition.
- Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has won four of his five league meetings with Burnley (L1), winning against them with three different teams (Watford, Swansea and Liverpool); the Clarets could become the first team Rodgers has beaten with four different teams.
- Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has scored five goals in his last five Premier League games – more than he had in his previous 16 in the competition (4).
WEST HAM V HUDDERSFIELD
3pm We finish up out Saturday Premier League preview with West Ham hosting Huddersfield and West Ham look the bet of the day here. At the time of writing they are currently trading 1.61 and that price looks absolutely massive to beat Huddersfield having home advantage. Huddersfield have lost seven of their last eight away Premier League games, drawing the other fixture, and while West Ham have had some shockers this season – they have been pretty solid at home. Huddersfield did surprise plenty of punters when beating Wolves recently, however that was at home and they have since lost to Brighton and Bournemouth – they look certain to go down and West Ham should have more than enough quality to deal with them at home. The 1.61 looks massive.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
West Ham to beat Huddersfield at 1.61.
